Great docu-drama without being overly tacky
31 March 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This docu-drama focuses on the various struggles of the engineers, electricians and workers in the bowls of the Titanic. The struggles present in the film not only relate to the sinking of the ship, but also ethnic and religious tensions which were prevalent in 1912.

The best thing about this docu-drama is that it is extremely informative while being entertaining. The set is actually quite good considering its budget and that it is a release-to-TV film. Yes, there are cheesy parts to create a connection with the characters in the film, and no it does not offer the heart-wrenching story expressed in Cameron's 'Titanic'. But it sets out what is intended, to tell the untold story of those who fought and died to keep the Titanic afloat for more than an hour and a half than what was expected, saving countless lives.

The reason for giving this docu-drama an 8 is that it offers a good story, decent acting (for a release-to-TV film), good effects, and its educational aspect. Improvements in the acting and the omittance of certain unnecessary story development would have made this film even better.
